You can't go it alone and be successful in your business (well, you can...but it's much harder...and did we mention lonely?) You need the support of your peers and, when it comes to connecting professional photographers, PPA offers a lot of opportunities.

PPA has amazing online education available to its members, of course, but sometimes it's best to get out from behind the computer! Take advantage of opportunities to Be More Connected that involve directly interacting with an instructor and/or fellow photographers live and in person. If face-to-face, in-person learning works better for you, then PPA has you covered!

  • Super 1 Day Events: Super 1 Day events occur bi-annually for two weeks and are facilitated by professional photographers looking to share their knowledge and experience with others. During Super 1 Day events, you get the opportunity to take part in day-long workshops covering a huge cross-section of topics. These are fantastic opportunities to hone your skills in addition to networking with your peers! Register now for Super 1 Day!

  • PPA Affiliate Schools: PPA has partnered with photography schools all over the country-and even in others- to provide professionals with in-person educational opportunities for one week each year. And like Super 1 Day, taking advantage of classes offered in these Affiliate Schools is not only a great way to become a better photographer, but also a great way to meet other pros just like you!

  • Photographic Competitions: All artists need to feel a sense of belonging and, according to Anne Geddes, PPA gave her "the fellowship and opportunities for my work to be reviewed and judged by my peers through photographic competitions, and it helped build my confidence and credibility as a photographer." Anne says, "There is a camaraderie that comes from entering your best images in print competitions. The judges are all walking up and 'sniffing' your print, as we used to joke. A judge says, 'You know, I don't think it's good enough for...' It's character building." PPA competitions begin at the start of the year at the district level and continue to the International Photographic Competition every summer.

  • Imaging USA: The world's largest, strongest and longest-running photography expo and convention continues to get bigger and better! 2018 is set to be no exception. Imaging USA will set up shop in Nashville, Tennessee. That's right. We'll be invading the Music City for three amazing days (six with pre-con!) of Imaging USA, January 14-16, 2018. You can't help but Be More Connected with a trip to Imaging USA! 

So get up, get out and get to learning! PPA is always adding ways to Be More Connected as a member. Learn more now at PPA.com/Connected.

The IPC is PPA's annual photographic competition that allows photographers to test their skills, and get advice on how to improve quality, impact and technique through constructive competition and critiques from qualified jurors. Participating in PPA's photographic competitions gives you the opportunity to:

  • Improve upon your finest work 
  • Earn recognition and admiration from your peers
  • Engage with the passionate and supportive photographic competition community
  • And improve your business!

If you think you're up for the challenge, you'll also choose to have your images critiqued, and will receive a recording from a judge with feedback on each image you've entered in the competition, explaining to you how each photo stacks up against the 12 elements of a winning image, and what you could have done better if it fell a little short. So come on and enter your images to be critiqued by official jurors at this year's competition. Recorded critiques are a fantastic way to learn, specifically, how you can take your images to the next level.

To give you an idea of the types of things you can learn from a critique at IPC, check out this one from last year's competition. This is "Hope" by Edith Itzcovici-Levy, critiqued by Gabriel Alonso M.Photog.Cr., CPP.


The judging for the International Photographic Competition will be held July 30-August 2, 2017 and you will be able to watch it all at no cost via PPA's live online streaming of the IPC! Early registration opens May 22, 2017-June 20, 2017 by 5 pm ET. Entries submitted on or after June 20 at 5 pm ET will be accepted with a late fee through July 6, 2017. Note that no entries will be accepted after July 6, 2017 by 5 pm ET.

This year's IPC has some new rules. Be sure to check them out and enter your images early to beat the crowds and save some money!

You can look forward to her passionate conversation on PRINT. The Movement with PPA's Director of Education, Angela Kurkian. The two discuss the importance of printing in photography and the role it plays in valuing your imagery and yourself as an artist. To learn more about PRINT. The Movement, visit our website.

Anne Geddes, one of the world's most respected photographers, creates images that are iconic, multi-award winning, internationally acclaimed, and beloved. 

A global ambassador for children, Anne, as well as having her own Philanthropic Trust, is proud to be the Global Advocate for the UN Foundation's Shot@Life campaign, an Ambassador Volunteer for the March of Dimes and an Ambassador for the GSK global awareness campaign for meningococcal disease.  

Anne's imagery has been published in over 84 countries, and in 24 languages. Anne has recently released a new series of photographs based on the signs of the Western Zodiac. 2017 will see the release of a comprehensive retrospective of her work, published by Taschen.

Your PPA family is getting bigger: the New York Institute of Photography is now offering their students certification through PPA's CPP program! This is a big deal and serves to expand and deepen both organization's missions to elevate the craft of photography and provide support to professionals. Check out the press release, reprinted below.

NYIP Adds Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) Designation to Online Photography Course Offerings    

The New York Institute of Photography (NYIP) has partnered with the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) to offer their students and graduates a widely recognized industry certification. The CPP (Certified Professional Photographer) designation is the official credential for photographers that want to set themselves apart within the highly competitive creative industry.

NEW YORK, NY-JANUARY 17, 2017
The New York Institute of Photography (NYIP) has partnered with the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) to offer their students and graduates a widely recognized industry certification. The CPP (Certified Professional Photographer) designation is the official credential for photographers that want to set themselves apart within the highly competitive creative industry.

The Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) program from PPA assures potential clients of a photographer's knowledge, experience and continuance to develop new skills and techniques. It is a declaration of professional competence and ability. Through this exclusive partnership, photographers who study with NYIP can qualify to take the CPP exam and earn their certification.

Photographers who earn their CPP credential do so for three primary reasons. First, it gives them an edge in advertising their services, as certification promotes trust in the minds of clients and consumers. Second, it is a way to justify the price of services offered by the world's top photographers. Finally, the peer validation step that is required to earn the certification signals to the photography world that you truly care about your craft.

"PPA is excited to bring the Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) credential to NYIP students and alumni through this exclusive partnership," says Julia Boyd, CAE, Director of Certification at PPA. "As the world's largest non-profit photography association PPA's mission of creating a vibrant community of successful professional photographers by providing education, resources and industry standards of excellence is in sync with NYIP's values and goals. We are eager to spread the power of Certification as both organizations continue to raise the bar in the photographic industry."

The CPP program can be added to any of NYIP's online photography classes at the time of enrollment for $473. This cost is $50 less than the price typically offered by PPA and includes one year of PPA membership. Students and graduates already enrolled in NYIP courses may purchase CPP directly for the same price.

After purchasing, the path to certification is a simple, 3-step process. First, students will declare their candidacy to PPA. Second, they will study for and pass the CPP exam. Finally, they will submit a set of images for official review. Once said images are approved, the photographer will have earned their CPP designation.

For more information or to get started on your path to photography certification, you may visit http://www.nyip.edu/courses/cpp-photography-certification.
